Dozens of men and women marched through the streets Thursday to take a stand against domestic violence.
Some of the marchers walked through the streets in white gowns in memory of Gladys Ricart. Ricart was killed on her wedding day by her ex-boyfriend in front of her family.
Nineteen years later, her family has kept her story alive with the Brides' March.
They say the wedding dress that symbolizes love and happiness, has been tainted by domestic violence. The family says this is why they march in the ceremonial dresses.
The group marched through each of the five boroughs for a total of 7 miles, all to bring awareness to what they call a deadly epidemic.
Those who are victims of domestic violence or know anyone dealing with domestic violence can contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233.
